Aviary with Framelits Label Dies

Introducing the new 'Framelits' Label Dies. These dies are a very elegant shape and I have used the largest die to make the base card for the design below.

To make the base card you need to pull your creased edge clear of the die so that you will not be cutting the left hand 'point', and then cut your card using the Big Shot machine. To make the card more stable cut away a small section from the bottom. I like the idea that if you make your base card using the die you can then match the shaped layers, and it is not so obvious that your base card has been 'adjusted' for this purpose as your eye gets drawn into the layers. I added a tied piece of ribbon to the crease to balance the point on the other side. My finished card is approximately 13.5cm x 11cm and will fit into most C6 envelopes.

Customers will be able to purchase the dies from the 1st May. This is the only shape that will be available and they come in a set of six dies (I have seen some cheaper sets lately that only have 3 dies per pack). They come in a plastic popper folder which makes excellent storage.

Card Colours: Lucky Limeade, Melon Mambo, Early Espresso and Whisper White.
Ink Colours: Melon Mambo and Soft Suede.
Stamps Sets: Aviary and the swirls from Everything Eleanor.

Back soon showing some wonderful new papers.
